  1. Which LED Strips Should I Take ?

    You could just buy red led strips, or just set them to red with your motherboard if it has the header. Some motherboards let you control them through the header if you have an actual rgb header. But if yours doesn't you can get some sort of controller.
  2. $250 budget build for Work

    I have a 4690k, which is a pretty good chip. What exactly are you going to do with the PC that requires enough power? The chip you want depends on what your doing with it.
  3. $250 budget build for Work

    What processor you want to buy? You could get a ryzen apu or some lower end intel one with integrated graphics.
  4. $250 budget build for Work

    No problem. Once you start going cheaper you start running into crappy ones. Just make sure it will fit in the prebuilt pc if you use the pre built case. Most of those use smaller ones. Check the outside of the psu in the pre built and see if it's ATX or something else. If it's smaller than ATX then look at silverstone's SFX ones which are a lot smaller but a little expensive.
  5. $250 budget build for Work

    Some newer ones should support it. Just search for some, and if you need to get the free cpu thing amd offers for free which you send back later. Also if your case fits a atx power supply here's one. https://www.amazon.com/EVGA-BRONZE-Supply-Warranty-100-B1-0500-KR/dp/B00DZ6R9GE/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1521747893&sr=8-3&keywords=atx+psu+80+plus
  6. $250 budget build for Work

    You should be able to find something under 50$, I'll go take a look at some good ones I can find. Do you know what parts it's going to have or the wattage it will require?
  7. Am I stressing my pc

    That is probably not enough wattage, and is another one of those weird cheap ones that explode and fry everything. The silverstone SFX ones are the small ones that should fit. Or you could take an angle grinder to your case and try to shove a big one in. I would just get a silverstone sfx one though.
  8. $250 budget build for Work

    What does the current desktop have? Are you planning to upgrade it or build a new pc? And for a cheap psu look for a good brand name psu and please don't cheap out on some off-brand weird one. If you upgrade the pre built get a new PSU. Someone else posted recently that their pc died from upgrading the pre-built and not changing out the psu.
  9. How can I get my dead drive's files?

    No, make sure you account for the size of the flash memory on the drive you will backup too. It usually says the size on the hdd's sticker. I have no idea how windows handles sshd's and them dying but it's possible the flash could have just died and the rest of the hdd is fine.
  10. 980ti SLI or 1080ti/newer cards later on

    I don't trust SLI personally, 1080 ti's are way too expensive right now but if you wait for the next generation to come out (supposedly soon-ish) then the price of the older ones will probably drop. You could also just try running in 1440p while you wait.
  11. Which LED Strips Should I Take ?

    They usually plug into a rgb header on a motherboard. Any strips will work. I think some have external psu power if they are really big because rgb headers can't deliver massive amounts of power.
  12. Shrinking partition not working

    Don't even try to do it with windows partition manager. It's trash and never lets you do anything to system drives. Easeus partition manager works and if you change the size of the C drive it'll probably reboot and open it's little mini operating system and resize it there.
  13. Wait for gtx 2080 or buy gtx 1080?

    Meh, I kind of doubt it. Both the titan XP's where so close to the 1080 ti and the 1080 ti was even faster than the first XP. Other than having 1 extra GB of vram I think it is pointless and had a much worse value. Plus if Nvidia made a second Titan V people would start getting pissed off about the naming.
  14. How can I get my dead drive's files?

    Ok, any strange clicking patterns. If it does that then it's dead.
  15. Am I stressing my pc

    There are some small psu's you can get. I think silverstone makes some. 500w is a bit excessive but before you sell the i5 make sure it actually works.
